Mission San Xavier, Tuscon, Arizona
Every fourth grader in California has studied the California Missions. This mission is in Tuscon, Arizona and it is beautiful! As you can see, both the outside and inside are more elaborate than ours in California.
According to their flyer, "A National Historic Landmark, San Xavier Mission was founded as a Catholic mission by Father Eusebio Kino in 1692. Construction of the current church began in 1783.
The oldest intact European structure in Arizona, the church's interior is filled with marvelous original statuary and mural paintings. It is a place where visitors can truly step back in time and enter an authentic 19th Century space."
It truly is beautiful. If you are ever in Tuscon, it is worth the visit.
